It was the worst 2 years my kids ever went through.... Hands down destroyed my boy want to go to school!!!
Not sure why someone is trolling to dog this school. 2 yrs experience with the school and myself and everyone I know are happy with it. Take the bad reviews with a grain of salt.
Not worth the time to really educate your children properly. poor teachers and even poorer administration.
My 9 year old Son has ADHD. At first, he did well at Saltar's. He had an IEP (individual learning plan) with one on one help in math and writing. About half way through his 4th grade year, his teacher began calling his mother at work in the middle of the day. Warning her that her Son was becoming disruptive, not cooperating, and causing undescribed disruptions in the classroom. These calls evolved into almost a bulling or badgering to put our Son on some kind of medication. We tried several different drugs, but our Son would not eat because of hem and lost weight. Here's our dilemma. Do we ruin our child's physical health so as to make him easier to teach, or do we nurture him and expect the staff at Saltar's to do their jobs?
We are a military family who moved into this school district to avoid the on-post and military feeder schools off-post and it has been WELL WORTH IT. Our son has always been slow to meet friends and we have always had to have an IEP due to stress induced stuttering but at Saltar's he has made friends immediately, no longer requires speech services after a quality evaluation that finally identified the speech issues as stress induced (as we thought as parents). Additionally,Mrs. LeCompte immediately welcomed Louis into her classroom, has a strong stance against bullying and challenges our son to do better...not just in what he is struggling but in what he is succeeding in as well. My son loves her because she seems to do all this "without ever yelling." The office has been responsive, expedient, and friendly. The PTA is very involved with many different events each month. We were hesitant about enrolling our son in school knowing we would move again shortly & considered homeschool but are happy we decided against it. They have helped our son develop social skills and he is quickly learning to make friends. Most important he smiles when he comes home for the first time in a while.
terrible school. No follow ups and poor office staff. very disapionting staff !! Not a good school for an average student or a very bright student as well . no special services are offered and the staff is clueless to state funded programs.
After several transition years withchanging principals, Saltar's is now settled with a stable principal, a staff that genuinely cares, and teachers who are motivated and engaged with the children. The district does not provide funding for extra-curricular activities, but the teachers try to do the best they can. The school is responsive to parents' needs and concerns when placing students. Our children really enjoyed it.
We have had some excellent teachers at Saltar's Point. The student body is well behaved and the building is well maintained. We have been generally very pleased with this school.
Terrible school! I have never felt like my child was in danger of going to school until he had to go to this one. They never did anything to make sure the students were safe. Glad we moved away from here.
Disappointed! Our son is doing great as far as grades are concerned. The school itself lacks an element of lifting the kids spirits and making learning fun. With the exception of a small holiday choir event, holidays are not celebrated. Very sad. Honestly, we are looking forward to moving just so we can change schools.
I have a daughter who was caught up in the 6th grade overload of Pioneer Middle School. Her group of children went to Salter's instead of the middle school. It was a hard year for them because the school was not designed to have middle school age children there. With this in mind, I think the school did the best they could. My daughter has had a positive experience while at Salter's. I have to give them a respectable grade for makeing an acward transition happen.
Saltar's Point Elementary is an absolutely wonderful school. From the Principal, teachers and wonderful programs, I would give this school an A+.
Salters point is a wonderful school. The teachers were all remarkable teachers. They have a wonderful educational program a well as great after school programs. They have a sock hop where the children and the parents attend. They have a carnival at the end of the school year. It is in a small school district so al the kids get to know one another throughou there school years. I would say that an oportunity to go to Salters is a wonderful oportunity.
I have to daughters one who is going on to the sixth grade and the other in third grade the both love it and have had postitive experinces. The after school programs a great and intresting for the kids. art muic and sports are all offered. and parent involvent is pretty good could be better but i know it is hard for working people.
Being a parent of a child who has just recently completed his first year at Salter's Point, I can't say enough postive things about his teacher (Mrs. Snow) and the the entire Salter's point staff. Truly, each of the professionals that make up this school are supportive to students as well as parents. From keeping us(the parents) informed to being great listeners with all of our comments and concerns. We have been truly blessed to have been within the Steilacom District these past 8 years. It is very evident that staff and adminstration care about student learning and parent comment. Being a educator myself, I appreciate and see clearly that this staff goes the extra mile for these kids. We are so blessed to be a part of this district. Thank you, our hats off to you.
